Belize City man jailed for inappropriately touching nine-year-old girl and giving her $5 not to tell

Posted: Friday, October 6, 2023. 8:36 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: 24-year-old Joshua Garnett of Belize City has been sentenced to two years imprisonment for sexual assault of a female minor aged nine at the time.

Garnett was charged in August of 2021 for touching the girl’s private area, as she testified in camera, which she said made her feel frightened and uncomfortable. The girl also said that Garnett gave her five dollars afterward and told her not to tell anyone, but she reported the matter.

Garnett denied the allegations before Chief Magistrate Jayani Wegodapola but was convicted on September 29 pending sentencing, the court finding that the evidence against him was “overwhelming.”
